Silicone Oven Mitts by SafeT Glove #Review #PotHolders


     This past week, I went to the ER.  I didn't know that I had insurance, and normally I'd just sit at home and suffer, but this was a pretty substantial slice through my thumb.  I got it from working with food.  Onions in particular, which is probably why my thumb healed up so nicely.  I won't show you the actual wound, it looked fake, like a Hollywood zombie artist created it.  It looks better now, but my thumb tip is still numb.

     Cuts are actually pretty low on my food-related injuries list.  Actually, I don't often get any injuries in the kitchen.  Occasionally I will burn myself a little when my bacon is spitting or I reach in to grab a cookie sheet from the oven.

     One product made to combat burns in the kitchen is silicone.  Silicone has exploded lately, you see silicone everything!  Muffin pans, trivets, baking pan liners, whisks and spatulas, it's crazy.  To be honest, I was too scared to even try anything silicone for years.  The concept of it all excited me, but the idea of putting something so soft in a hot oven seemed unfathomable.

     Well, I'm glad to say now that I have finally entered the silicone cooking world and it's nowhere near as scary as I thought!  My first try was a pair of mitts much like these.  I decided to keep them, but I also wanted to give some out for Christmas.  So I got this pair of SafeT Gloves, they're silicone oven mitts to keep your hands and wrists safe while cooking.

      I think the little heart design is sweet.  But it also serves to be extra grippy and extra protective.  The inside of the mitts are smooth and comfortable.  They fit me with just being a little large, most gloves in any variety are large, so it's nice to feel like these fit.  However, they are big enough where I think they could fit almost anyone.  The wrist part is nonrestrictive, which is great because I don't have small wrists.

     When I reached in and grabbed the oven, I didn't even feel the warmth until I held onto the rack directly for a few moments.  I didn't feel at anytime like I was going to get burned.  These things are amazing.  They have cloth mitts beat by a long shot.

     And for handy sake, like most mitts, there is a way to hang it.  Instead of large loops though, it has small holes in the corner to hand from a nail or such.  You could also hang it from a carabiner or other clip.
     I love these mitts and I definitely recommend them to anyone who spends time in the kitchen.  To learn more, check out SafeT Glove on Amazon.

Except for the product(s) given to me for the purpose of reviewing, I received no compensation for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
